Anger in Santa Barbara over investigators handling Elliot Rodgers murders.. This is what the AP reports: “It’s not clear how the slightly built Rodger was able to overpower the three. Rodger was randomly assigned to share the Isla Vista apartment with Hong and Wang. Chen was visiting the pair on May 23. In a joint interview, the victims’ parents told the Washington Post (http://wapo.st/1ptrsTS) they visited the crime scene and saw no blood on the walls or ceiling. Police had removed a 6-by-5 foot piece of carpeting in one bedroom and a swath of vinyl flooring around the toilet had been cut. They said the limited amount of material removed from the apartment suggest the killings were confined to a small space.“
